The Danville Lions Club will host the annual 5K Run & Walk in conjunction with the Danville-Howard Turkey Festival.
The Danville Lions Club sponsors the Officer Tom Cottrell Memorial Scholarship 5K Run/Walk, this is our second year for this purpose. Danville Police Officer Cottrell was killed in the line of duty on January of 2016. 100% of the race proceeds is put in a trust for the education of the 3 children of Officer Cottrell. The Lions Club pays all of the race expenses without taking any funds from the race fees. Thru this, and other events and donations, the Danville Lions have raised $14,000 to date, towards our initial goal of $30,000.
The course runs along the Kokosing Gap Trail beginning at South Richards Street. It's an easy, flat course on a paved trail.
